Stevie Nicks Talks Tour
After spending the past year getting friendly with her old bandmates in Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Nicks is going her own way again, with a major summer tour set to kick off May 27 in Hartford, Connecticut, and run through early August. The roadtrip supports Enchanted, the upcoming three-disc box set covering her solo career; the collection is due in stores April 28.
"It's going to be a great set, and it's not going to be like any other," the forty-nine-year-old Nicks tells Wall of Sound of her upcoming gigs. "On a regular tour, basically you just go back and get the tour you did last time and change it around a little and add two new songs off of whatever new record you're going out with. This tour is going to be a story. Because it's the box- set tour, it's okay for me to pick some songs that people aren't familiar with. I think this will be kind of a special show."
Nicks says her repertoire will draw from her solo hits, along with the singles she wrote for Fleetwood Mac, such as "Dreams," "Rhiannon," and "Landslide." She'll also perform some of the rare and unreleased songs included on Enchanted, plus seldom-heard pieces like "After the Glitter Fades," "Garbo," and "Rose Garden." Boz Scaggs will open for Nicks on the tour, and she'll be backed by a nine-piece band that includes Brett Tuggle from the Fleetwood Mac tour and drummer Greg Bissonnette, who was a member of David Lee Roth's early bands.
